O Dios Mio! Paranormal Activity Getting a Latino Cousin!
Some really interesting news coming out of Paramount to kick off your Easter weekend. Not only is the Paranormal Activity crew working on the fourth entry into the franchise, but there's a Latino-flavored offshoot in the works as well.
According to The Hollywood Reporter the new project will reunite producers Jason Blum and Oren Peli with Christopher Landon, the writer of the second and third installments of the Paranormal movies.
Landon will write and direct the project, described by sources as a “cousin” to the Paranomal movies but not a sequel or reboot nor a spin-off. The real kicker is that the movie will be Latino-themed. It will star a Latino cast and will tackle Catholic-based paranormal mythology. It will not, however, be in Spanish.
The aim is to make the micro-budgeted movie in the next several months.
Paramount could potentially have the movie ready for an early January 2013 slot. This past January the studio released the Catholic-centered found-footage horror movie The Devil Inside; the movie was made for about $1 million and grossed $53 million domestically and $46 million internationally. The three Paranomal movies have grossed more than $575 million.
